From Library Journal 
After four decades and 19 books chronicling America's small farms, forgotten towns, and aging industrial symbols (see, e.g., Small Town America, LJ 7/94), Plowden's artistry and anger are undimmed. His pictures have always been exquisite acts of salvage. "The fact that the demise of the steam locomotive and the beginning of my career occurred simultaneously was a coincidence that determined the course of the rest of my life," Plowden writes. These 170 black-and-white prints from 40 years show Plowden in all his fields of study?from the New Jersey wastelands and West Virginia factory towns to a Brooklyn, IA, rooming-house; the plume of a Great Lakes steamer; the drama of an Indiana blast furnace; or the weathered beauty of a church door in New Diggings, WI. Keeping "one step ahead of the wrecking ball," he has wandered a heartbreaking landscape of endangered places and snapped much of it before it vanished. An excellent introduction to Plowden's beautiful work; highly recommended.?Nathan Ward, "Library Journal"
